Hi Shichi-77!

If I'm going to go out of a league game early, it WILL be with AA, KK or maybe, possibly QQ. With a slightly smaller than standard raise and 2 calls in front of my KK, I'm absolutely going to 3-bet here. A pot-sized raise (my std raise sizing for this situation) is over 1/2 my stack, so I'm shipping KK here every single time.

When playing poker, I do NOT want to be results oriented. I want to be making the best decision for a given point in time based on the information that I have and in this situation in a league game, the best decision is to shove.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
